Giammattei says work to replace migration

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Guatemala’s new president urged Mexico on Thursday to boost commercial ties between the neighboring nations, arguing that creating more work opportunities is crucial for reducing migration northward toward the United States.

Speaking at the Senate in Mexico City, Alejandro Giammattei said Mexico accounts for just 4 percent of his country’s international commerce and there is room aplenty for that to grow, the Associated Press reports.
